My daughter is 44 and suffers from a few female problems, including endometriosis, and she has a low immune system. She has been plagued with cold sores on her nose. Can you recommend anything that might help her?
Certainly, oestrogen dominance responsible for endometriosis, like many other female hormones, does have widespread ramifications on the body including affecting the immune system. Low immunity means that we are all susceptible to infections from bacteria and viruses. I am unsure if she is being treated for endometriosis, but I think we can certainly enhance the immune system using a supplement such as Daily Immunity. This supplement contains herbs that enhance specialised white blood cells that attack pathogens, probiotics to enhance immunoglobulins which are antigen type compounds, Vitamins C, D3 and zinc for their varying roles to support the immune system. I would also suggest that your daughter takes L-Lysine 1000mg. Lysine is an amino acid that blocks the ability of the herpes virus to replicate and in doing this it helps to treat cold sores quickly.
Can you offer any advice on gynecomastia? My fifteen year old has suffered for three years with no improvement. Are there any supplements he can take?
In the vast majority of cases, gynecomastia is associated with elevated levels of prolactin and oestrogen and low levels of testosterone, but taking herbs like tribulus (which enhances testosterone) may not necessarily be the answer as in some cases, the body reacts to increased testosterone by producing more oestrogen to achieve hormone balance. I think it is better to work on oestrogen metabolism such as DIM, Calcium-D glucarate and perhaps choline.

DIM is a phytonutrient found in kale, sprouts broccoli which works on shifting the pathways of oestrogen metabolism to one that is least likely to cause side effects associated with oestrogen dominance such as weight changes, fatigue, gynecomastia and acne. Calcium D-Glucarate is a compound that is known to help aid the detoxification process of oestrogen and its elimination. Both are available in one supplement as per link below. Choline donates methyl groups to oestrogen molecules. This results in the oestrogen molecules becoming weaker and may prove to be effective. The dose is three capsules in divided doses daily.
I'm looking for advice on how to manage short-term severe stress. I've felt under the weather for the past few weeks, and feel as though I have an impending cold and sore throat. I woke up at the weekend with a red itchy rash across my forehead along and feel completely exhausted.
The symptoms you describe point to what is termed adrenal stress or adrenal exhaustion. At times of severe stress, the adrenals over-produce cortisol which causes the symptoms of stress but is also responsible for a myriad of other symptoms which vary, but since it is inflammatory in nature, it is not unusual to get rashes. Whilst the adrenals are busy producing stress hormones, they do not produce sufficient energising enzymes and hormones resulting in tiredness and fatigue. I am going to recommend two supplements which may be of value in addressing this quickly and I have to assume that you do not take mood modifying medications nor have uncontrolled high blood pressure.

​Firstly please take Magnolia Rhodiola Complex, one capsule twice a day. Magnolia extracts work to reduce levels of stress hormones and physically relax muscles and nerves; Rhodiola works to enhance serotonin uptake by the brain which elevates mood, and theanine in the supplement works to enhance alpha waves which relax the mind and conversely help with focus and concentration. I would also recommend that you take Sibergin, one capsule in the morning. Sibergin contains a high strength of Siberian ginseng which stimulates the adrenals to produce their energising enzymes and hormones. This herb also helps enhance the body's stress response which is basically the body's ability to deal with stress. For the majority, an increase in energy is experienced within days of taking this supplement, but of course this again depends upon the levels of stress hormones.
I have suffered from rhinitis now for over twelve months and antihistamines don’t seem to help at all. This condition is really getting me down as it is constant, please can you help?
There are many causal factors for rhinitis which include pet dander, fungal spores in the air, pollen and dust mites to name a few. The supplement Aller-DMG is a supplement which works to inhibit histamine and to reduce inflammation. It will ease breathing, helping to prevent inflammation and mucus production and it is safe to be taken on an ongoing basis if necessary.

I had a chemical peel at the end of last September. It was terrible and for weeks I had a red and blistered face. Now I am left with dark hyperpigmentation around my upper lip. Can you please suggest a product or products to help lighten this area?
I am sorry to learn of your experience and would suggest that you use DoSe Alpha Arbutin + Kojic Acid Serum. Arbutin is a naturally occurring compound and its synthesised form, alpha arbutin, is one of the most effective and safest ingredients to effectively reduce pigmentation gradually. Kojic acid, at the level used in this serum, works to markedly improve skin's appearance quickly, but safely. Please start with either AM or PM application for one or two weeks to ensure that this serum is compatible for your skin.

It might also be prudent to use DoSe Multi-Peptide Anti-Ageing Serum just once a day either AM or PM before the Alpha Arbutin serum. This is because clearly there has been inflammation to the skin tissues both on the face and around the upper lip. Inflammation breaks the collagen matrix and can result in greater lip and fine lines over a period of time, which can be anything from six months to a few years to develop. DoSe Multipeptide Anti-Ageing Serum works to strengthen the skin tissues, enhance collagen synthesis, provide antioxidant protection and numerous other benefits.
Is Yacon Syrup suitable whilst on a low carb diet? I know it’s high carb but some carbs eliminate each other, so I would appreciate your help.
Although Yacon Syrup has approximately 65% carbohydrates, it easily fits into a low carbohydrate diet plan because it has a low GI index which means its digestible sugars actually have no impact on the body. It has no impact as such on carb intake and works well with ketogenic diets as long as you do not over-use it.
My husband was attacked by a caterpillar while in Portugal. He had a rash and an awful itch, which lasted more than a month. Eventually, antihistamines cleared this up, but now and again he gets itchy spots. Is there anything that can help?
It is not unusual for certain compounds to remain in the bloodstream, even if the majority of the rash is usually alleviated with the use of antihistamines. I know some caterpillars can cause a rash for several months so my recommendation would be to take Stinging Nettle Urtica Drops for the next month. Aside from eliminating excess histamine and numerous other inflammatory compounds from the body, Stinging Nettle displays powerful detoxifying properties whilst at the same time it is a highly nutritive herb. Stinging Nettle is often recommended for chronic inflammatory skin conditions.
I suffer from sinusitis three or four times a year and would appreciate some help in keeping me free of this condition with supplementation.
The most important supplement, which can be taken on an ongoing basis without any side effects, is Plantago Tincture. This herbal supplement contains extract of compounds from Plantago which display anti-inflammatory properties and also break down the bonds that form mucus easing its expulsion. Additionally, Plantago also displays mild antibacterial properties which often help to prevent sinus infections when taken on an ongoing basis. I would also consider taking DoSe Liposomal Vitamin C, which delivers 1000mg of vitamin C from one teaspoon into the body where it is utilised for a multitude of functions. Vitamin C reduces inflammation and so can prevent and ease sinus congestion. Most of us have suboptimal levels of vitamin C in the body.
Can you recommend a treatment for psoriasis of fingernails?
Psoriasis of the nails is an autoimmune condition so make sure that you do not stimulate the immune system but rather support it with nutrients such as Vitamin C, Zinc and Vitamin D3. According to the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, supporting the liver by removing toxins helps inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis whether on the body or scalp. This is where I would start and would recommend a liver cleansing supplement such as Healthaid Milk Thistle Complex to be taken daily until the condition markedly improves. As far as nail care is concerned, nails are porous, so please apply Fulvic Nail Cream morning and evening. This is a powerful nail treatment cream that may help any discolouration, pitting and damage to the nail itself. Please apply morning and evening to the nail bed and the nail itself.
May I ask if MacuGuard Ocular Support is only for use with established macular degeneration or can it be taken for general ocular health? I do not have MD but as the years go by I am noticing a general decline in my vision-and the frustratingly increasing need to wear glasses.
Although Macuguard Ocular Support is aimed at AMD, the three carotenoids in this supplement, together with extracts of Saffron, provide multiple benefits for maintaining healthy vision due to their antioxidant benefits. Saffron has a long history of benefits for the eye due to its natural levels of carotenoids which protect the retina as well as the lens.
After recovering from my glandular fever, my son now suffers from mouth ulcers and this has been going on for several months. He gets them on average once a week, they are painful and appear on the inner cheek and tongue. The GP did some mouth swabs and said there is no evidence of bacterial or viral infection, but there must be something causing it. Can you help, please?
The most common causes are bacterial or viral infections due to a compromised immune system and/or possibly a lack of B vitamins. I know that fatigue or tiredness is often linked to a lack of B vitamins so perhaps he should try this route first with a supplement as per the link below. Also, many people have found that Clinisept Mouthwash helps to prevent and heal mouth ulcers. Clinisept contains a hypochlorous solution which displays anti-inflammatory properties.
Can you recommend a non-steroidal cream to help with, what I think is, eczema?
You may wish to try Hope's Relief Intensive Dry Skin Rescue Cream which has been formulated for inflammatory skin conditions, including eczema. This non-steroidal cream contains a blend of Chamomile, Manuka Honey, Gotu Kola, Aloe Vera and other actives to soothe inflamed skin, moisturise dry skin, and encourage the healing of inflamed skin.
I have two conditions which may interact. I have lichen sclerosis which causes inflammation and intense irritation. I have been prescribed creams and told not to use soap on a daily basis. I also have a sliding hiatus hernia which causes acidity from the gut and discomfort. Occasionally I resort to Lansoprazole, although I am concerned about side effects. Can you add anything that might help these two conditions?
The occasional use of Lansoprazole should not be a problem however I think you would benefit from the use of Cinnamon Bark. One of the main components in Cinnamon, cinnamaldehyde, helps alleviate the symptoms of gastric irritation which helps relieve symptoms of acid reflux which is a common problem with a hiatal hernia. I would also be inclined to take some Apple Cider Vinegar on a daily basis. Although Apple Cider Vinegar is mildly acidic, it produces an alkaline effect in the body which may be of value not only for acid reflux but also for reducing inflammation which is one of the causes of lichen sclerosis.
My 38 year old son has what we believe to be Raynaud’s disease. He has visited the GP and was told that he has poor circulation, and nothing more. The ends of his fingers go white and painful, even when the weather isn’t that cold and the nails on the affected fingers are now literally falling away from the nail bed. Would you have any suggestions that may help please?
Most cases of Raynaud's are associated with poor circulation which is exacerbated during cold weather, but the person can still get cold hands and feet even when the weather is milder. This is termed primary Raynaud's whereas secondary Raynaud's is when there is an underlying condition such as scleroderma where there is a hardening of skin tissues and some scarring, or in some cases diseases due to high cholesterol depositing onto the arterial walls or inflammation in the arteries leading to poor circulation or a gradual loss of elasticity of the valves in blood vessels which impedes blood flow around the body. The nails are falling away because of the lack of nutrients due to poor circulation. 

I think whatever the cause, your son will benefit from taking Diosmin Plus. This contains a bioflavonoid called Diosmin which works to slightly thin the blood allowing for greater circulation and also works over a long period of time to try and restore some elasticity to the valves inside the blood vessels. Diosmin Plus also contains Gotu Kola which works to improve lymphatic circulation as well as pycnogenol, another herbal extract involved in helping to enhance circulation through a variety of mechanisms.
My husband and I both have high cholesterol and I would like some guidance on the appropriate supplements to lower our cholesterol. My husband has read about the beneficial results of plant stanol ester supplements. Do any of your supplements include these?
Plant stanols and sterols are basically cholesterol-type fats that are selectively absorbed and subsequently block long chain fats from entering the body. As such they are of no real value when it comes to familial or genetic cholesterol because they block fats from one's diet whereas for the majority of people, elevated cholesterol is associated with genetics and ageing rather than having a fat-laden diet.

Cholestsafe is the most complete supplement for those with elevated cholesterol levels because it contains phytosterols, as mentioned above, but it contains two of the most researched compounds, red yeast rice and policosanol, both of which have been shown to reduce elevated cholesterol by roughly 30% within eight weeks. This supplement also contains artichoke to cleanse the liver where cholesterol is manufactured and ultimately destroyed, chromium to regulate blood sugar levels so that any excess is not converted into triglycerides and Co-q10 to prevent the oxidation of circulating cholesterol which otherwise becomes sticky and adheres to the walls of arteries.

My 90-year-old father in law suffers terribly with dry eyes. Some days they are red raw, and he describes the feeling as if he has stones in his eyes. He has tried prescription and OTC eye drops, to no avail. Is there anything else he could try, please?

Dry eyes occur as a result of the ageing process, which changes the pH and the density of the tears, which means that the tears evaporate quickly, leading to constant watering and dry eyes syndrome. Tear Support helps to change the pH of the tears and so supports those with dry eyes. Topically, please use a high concentration of hyaluronic acid in an eye drop to ensure that the film of tears evaporates slowly. Hycosan Extra Eye Drops contain this concentration.

Can you please recommend any products to help with occipital neuralgia? My daughter is desperate to come off the opioids she has been prescribed.

Occipital neuralgia, whilst not life threatening, can have a debilitating effect. This rare type of nerve pain is usually caused by pinched nerves or muscle tightness, assuming that your daughter has not had a head injury. This pain is associated with nerve inflammation and I would suggest taking some Turmeric Curcumin C3 Complex. This curcumin supplement contains three of the most potent compounds found in curcumin that display anti-inflammatory properties. For muscle tension, it might be prudent to use Magnesium Lotion to be applied to the back of the neck twice a day. Magnesium relaxes muscles and nerves and its topical use delivers magnesium chloride to the site for these benefits.

My adult son has had a spate of cold/flu type viral episodes during the last six months, which last around ten days each time. He is just getting over the latest one, the previous being two months ago. He's taking daily vitamin D, plus plenty of greens and vitamin C. Is there a particular supplement you'd recommend, please, to bolster his immune system?

Clearly, your son has a compromised immune system, which needs ongoing support. I suggest that he continues to take some Vitamin D, greens, and Vitamin C preferably a liposomal vitamin C supplement since this is the most bioavailable form of vitamin C which delivers this very important nutrient to the cells. I presume that your son is taking a minimum of 1000iu of vitamin D3 daily but ideally, men should be taking 3000iu per day during winter months and 1000iu during the summer months. May I also suggest that he bolsters his immune system with Astragalus Capsules. This herb works to enhance white blood cell counts which work to engulf pathogens including bacteria and viruses so as to prevent any infective organism from lowering the immune response. Astragalus is safe for ongoing use and I would recommend its use until summer.


I am 46 years old with combination skin. My T-zone can get quite oily and I still get the occasional hormonal breakout, which might be menopausal related. As I am getting older I am noticing my skin is less elastic and I have some small darker patches on my cheeks. What can I use to tackle all these issues?

Finding the right skincare solution when you have multiple concerns can be quite confusing. The DoSe by VH range has been formulated to tackle many of these common concerns and can also be switched up as your skin changes through the seasons and / or with your hormones during the month. It sounds like Niacinamide 5% serum would be a great starting point for you. Tolerated by most skin types and effective for many skin concerns Niacinamide is a versatile building block ingredient helping to control oil production, visibly minimise enlarged pores, tighten lax pores, improve uneven skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles and diminish dullness. I would then suggest you use DoSe Alpha Arbutin 2% and Kojic Acid 1% Serum. This formulation promotes the production of collagen and increases skin firmness and elasticity to help with the visible signs of ageing as well as helping to target age spots and post blemish marks. Lastly, people with combination or oily skin often make the mistake of skipping out hydration thinking that this will make them appear more oily. Hyaluronic Acid Serum helps to hydrate the skin by encouraging moisture retention. When the skin retains enough moisture it naturally produces less sebum or oil.
How to use:
AM: Cleanse, Niacinamide, Alpha Arbutin 2% and Kojic Acid 1%, Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Moisturise and SPF
PM: Cleanse, Niacinamide, Alpha Arbutin 2% and Kojic Acid 1%, Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Moisturise

In the colder weather I suffer with really dry, tight skin on my face. I can't seem to get my makeup to go on evenly no matter how much moisturiser I use with it flaking and sinking into my wrinkles as the day progresses. What can I add to my skincare routine to prevent this happening?

Many people don't think to change up their skincare routine often trying to rectify a drier complexion caused by cold weather and central heating buy just piling on more moisturiser. Renewing the skins surface is an important step. After cleansing use DoSe Salicylic Acid 2% Serum. A BHA, Salicylic Acid 2% Serum exfoliates the skin and deep cleans pores, ridding them of dead cells, dirt and debris. Due to its superb ability to exfoliate and cleanse the pores, it helps to refine, clarify, brighten and revive your skin's texture. Follow with Hyaluronic Acid serum and your usual moisturiser and then as a final step to combat dryness use Squalane Face Oil. This super-light, non-greasy oil is an exceptional skin hydrator and can even be used around the eyes and lips. In the evening switch out the Salicylic Acid for Peptide Rescue Serum. Suitable for all skin types, Peptide Rescue Serum defends the skin against collagen damage while reducing inflammation, dryness, breakouts, fine lines and wrinkles. It works by breaking down the body's cortisol production (the stress hormone) which has been connected to a wide range of skin issues and premature ageing. In the morning don't forget to end with an SPF.  


How to use:
AM: Cleanse, Salicylic Acid 2% Serum, Hyaluronic Acid, Moisturise and SPF, Squalane Face Oil
PM: Cleanse, Salicylic Acid 2% Serum, Hyaluronic Acid, Peptide Rescue Serum, Moisturise

I am in my early 50s and apart from a little texture and redness in the centre of my face have always had relatively good skin. As I age I am noticing my skin is becoming duller. How can I achieve a brighter complexion and help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles?

With a long list of skincare benefits, Azelaic Acid 10% Serum is a superb mild exfoliant that helps to refine the skin's surface. Targeting redness and textural irregularities for clearer skin. In the morning follow with Ergothioniene Serum, our newest serum, a powerhouse of ingredients to primarily address a myriad of ageing concerns.  In the evening continue with Azelaic Acid 10% Serum and follow with Ergothioniene dosed into your favourite moisturiser. I recommend Fulvic Face Cream.  End your evening skincare routine with two pumps of DoSe by VH C-Deep Vitamin C Serum. Suitable for all skin types and penetrating deeper than comparable Vitamin C serums, C-Deep helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as firm, even-out the skin tone and brighten your complexion overall.
How to use:
AM:    Cleanse, Azelaic Acid 10% Serum, Ergothioneine Serum, Moisturise and SPF
PM:  Cleanse, Azelaic Acid 10% Serum, Ergothioneine Serum, Moisturise, C-Deep Vitamin C Serum


I have an undisplaced tibial head fracture and I am taking HA, but should I take Superior Joints, or is there something else I should be taking?

Undisplaced tibial head fractures can take four to five months to heal. I think you should introduce Liposomal Vitamin C alongside Hyaluronic Acid. Both of these will enhance collagen production, which is an important building block for bone tissue. Vitamin C displays anti-inflammatory properties whilst also helping to heal soft tissues which may have been traumatised due to the injury. Please take one teaspoon of DoSe Liposomal Vitamin C which has a very high absorption rate and delivers this important nutrient to the bone building cells. 

I am currently experiencing recurrent UTIs and I wondered if you can suggest anything that will help as I am constantly given antibiotics from the GP which leave me feeling exhausted. I am 53 years but have not started menopause yet, at least I have no symptoms and have a regular menstrual cycle.

I do suspect that the recurrent UTIs are due to low female hormone levels even if you are not experiencing the classic signs of menopause since this is a common problem associated with low female hormones as oestrogen regulates the pH of the lining of the vagina. Waterfall D-Mannose would be the ideal supplement as it works to dislodge the bacteria from the bladder walls and so may help prevent UTIs, but of course recurrent UTIs are due to a number of factors primarily hormonal imbalances and low immunity being the main reasons since this affects the pH of the lining of the urinary tract and a lowered immune system simply makes the body more susceptible to infection. Mannose is completely insoluble in the body and so takes the bacteria out with it and is safe for long-term use. Please take one or two tablets daily for preventative purposes. 

My twin is suffering badly with swollen joints and pain in her hands, affecting her ability to grip. Would NEM help her?

Superior Joints would be the ideal supplement for your twin. It contains Natural Eggshell Membrane which has been clinically studied and found to have potent anti-inflammatory properties for both muscles and joints. Natural Eggshell Membrane contains two rare amino acids including proline which are thought to encourage healthy cartilage production. For the majority, pain relief is often within days and the supplement is safe to be taken on an ongoing basis or for as long as is necessary. Superior Joints also contains tart cherries to remove uric acid which causes pain and stiffness as well as hyaluronic acid to cushion the cartilage matrix in between joint tissues. Turmeric is added to enhance circulation and for its anti-inflammatory properties.


I just had a blood test because at a recent routine eye examination my optometrist noticed some issues with the blood supply to my eyes. As a result of this test, my doctor has found that my overall cholesterol count is 5.6 and has advised that I start taking statins. So this is what I have done—take a 20mg tablet once a day—and I am now in my second week. I just wonder if there is any supplement that you would advise that I should take alongside.

​If you are taking statins then may I please suggest that you take Ubiquinol Q10 because statins deplete this very important nutrient which oxygenates all the muscle tissues in the body, including the heart which is the most important muscle tissue in the body. Please take one capsule daily on an ongoing basis. 

I was diagnosed with coeliac disease more than thirty years ago, but I have been reading recently that coeliacs are very likely to be deficient in Vitamin B12, folate, iron and zinc. I have not been able to find the appropriate dose for these supplements, however, and I wonder if you could help. Is it best to take these individually or as part of multivitamins and minerals?

Nutritional deficiencies are very common in coeliacs since the digestive system simply does not function effectively leading to malnutrition. I would suggest a food-derived multivitamin supplement such as Daily Multivitamins. Food state and food derived multivitamins are absorbed and utilised far more so than synthetic and semi-synthetic supplements.

My husband suffers from neuropathy in his feet and it seems to be getting worse. I have asked him to cut down on his alcohol intake which he has done, but not enough. He is on blood thinners as he had a stroke about ten years ago, he is 63 years old. Are there any supplements that may help?

I would definitely recommend that your husband takes Lion's Mane Mushroom extracts by way of a supplement. Research has shown its ability to enhance nerve growth factors (NGFs) which are tiny proteins involved in the repair of the sheath surrounding the nerves and also in enhancing new nerves. These two benefits obviously would be of value for the long term maintenance of peripheral neuropathy as this shows promise. Lion's Mane Mushroom is not known to have blood thinning properties. 
Topically, your husband may benefit from the application of magnesium on his feet. Magnesium deficiencies are widespread in the adult population and studies seem to indicate that people with high levels of magnesium were less likely to suffer from neuropathy. Magnesium sprayed locally works to transdermally relax the nerves alleviating the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy and this form of magnesium also gets absorbed into the bloodstream.


My husband is 64 and has an essential tremor in his hands. The doctor can only suggest beta blockers which he does not want to take. What supplements or herbal remedies can he take to help manage his symptoms?

Studies indicate that an essential tremor may be linked to a lack of dopamine receptors in the brain or dopamine breakdown. It might be prudent to consider a supplement such as Dopa Mind which contains an extract of green oats known to prevent dopamine breakdown.  It might also be prudent to consider taking a magnesium supplement should the symptoms not improve, since magnesium relaxes the nervous system and is crucial for its optimal function. 

My granddaughter, who is 32, has been diagnosed, for the second time this year, with a kidney infection. She has been a vegan for the past ten years and is normally fit and healthy. Please, can you suggest something to help, as normal antibiotics don’t seem to be working?

I would suggest that your granddaughter take Waterfall D-Mannose tablets at a dose of one tablet twice a day for two or three months. D-Mannose is a long chain carbohydrate that is totally insoluble throughout the body and it may take the infective bacteria with it as it passes through the kidneys, helping to prevent recurrent infections. Since it is insoluble in the body, it is totally safe for ongoing use.

I have been diagnosed with Scleroderma, an autoimmune disease that affects the connective tissues. I have always had Raynauds and Varicose Veins and I was wondering if the ginger warming cream would help.

Capsicum and Ginger Warming Cream is perfectly safe to use for Raynauds and for varicose veins helping to enhance localised circulation. This should not present a problem with scleroderma where inflammation from within is scarring the tissues.  You might wish to consider taking Turmeric Curcumin C3 Complex which contains three compounds from turmeric that are known to reduce inflammation without boosting the immune system. These compounds also work to slightly thin the blood and therefore help Raynauds and varicose veins too. 


I’m 55 and wear contacts and glasses and would like to keep my eyes as healthy as I can. I looked at all your vitamins for eyes and I don’t know which is best for me. Could you please advise?

Nutrof Total is a supplement that contains nutrients that have been the subject of two major continuing studies called AREDS and AREDS2, which show that these nutrients, together with Omega 3, help to maintain healthy eyes and possibly protect against a variety of possible age-related eye disorders. 

My daughter keeps getting thrush and Bacterial vaginosis; what can she take to restore a healthy pH in her vagina?

Thrush and Bacterial vaginosis often occur when the pH of the lining of the vaginal walls changes due to a change in the female hormones. I suggest eradicating the infective organisms using Candipure for a couple of months whilst taking a probiotic supplement such as Mega Probio on an ongoing basis at a dose of one capsule twice a day. The idea is that the Candipure will eradicate the bacteria and fungi, whilst the probiotic supplement prevents any species from thriving. 

I am 48 and on HRT but currently I am struggling with anxiety.  It is mostly before I fall asleep and sometimes if I wake during the night. Is there anything you would recommend? 

Anxiety and other stress symptoms are associated with increased cortisol and other adrenal hormones. It seems that your cortisol levels are not going down sufficiently at the moment in order for you to enjoy restful sleep. I would recommend that you take Magnolia Rhodiola at a dose of one capsule in the morning and one capsule an hour before bedtime.
Magnolia extracts help to physically relax muscles and nerves as well as reducing cortisol and other adrenal stress hormones. Rhodiola works to enhance the uptake of the neuronutrient serotonin which is a mood elevator and nerve calming chemical, and L-theanine (part of the formulation) is an amino acid that works to enhance alpha waves. Alpha waves relax the mind and, so enable us to switch off.
